This historic 4 bedroom, 3.5bath town-home on tree-lined Catharine Street, in lovely Queen Village, sits across from the beautiful Weccacoe playground and neighboring Meredith Catchment (one of the best public elementary schools in the city). Built in the 1920s, this beauty retains its original charm and includes extensive 2017 renovations including custom wide-plank pine hardwood flooring and a wide-open ground level floor-plan with a gorgeous custom kitchen with all-new appliances, convenient pot filler over the stove, hand-poured concrete counter-tops and a stunning butcher block island. The kitchen door opens up to the expansive backyard that's perfect for grilling or playing and comes with a shady London Plane tree and a convenient off-street parking area that is large enough for bike storage as well. There's also a spacious first-floor living and dining room area, powder room featuring an antique sink and plenty of closet and pantry/storage space. The back staircase leads to the 2nd floor master bedroom suite featuring a walk through custom-built closet and custom barn door bathroom entrance. The gorgeous master bath features a large shower which is adorned with farmhouse style antique brass fixtures, custom tile work and radiant floor heating. The second south facing bedroom works perfectly as a spacious child's room or home office and also includes a large closet with French doors and built-in bookshelves. Right beside this bedroom is another full bath with custom tile work, a claw-foot tub and gorgeous chrome fixtures. The 3rd floor loft is perfect for another bedroom, office or living area. The space is large enough to fit a bed, couch and more. It also opens up to a spacious roof deck/city oasis for you, your family and friends to enjoy dinner, container gardening or simply relaxing on a sectional couch and hammock. The deck gets plenty of shade, making for a cool, country-like setting in the heart of the city. The finished basement features tons of storage, a laundry area and a 4th full bedroom with a brand new, custom-tiled full bath with shower stall. The current owners use this bedroom as a spacious, soundproofed playroom for their kids. Other amenities include historic Marvin wood windows, pre-wired low-voltage window candles, new Whirlpool appliances (2018), Samsung washer/dryer (2018), HVAC water heater (2018) and whole house humidifier plus water filtration system.
